Mutfwang Signs Two Electricity Bills Into Laws
Plateau Governor Caleb Mutfwang has signed two electricity bills into laws aimed at ensuring a robust and reliable power supply for economic prosperity and overall advancement.
The Plateau State Energy Corporation and Plateau State Electricity Market are designed to facilitate the generation of adequate electricity, including renewable energy sources to meet public’s needs and enable surplus sales to neighboring States.
Mutfwang, who signed the laws at the New Government House in Little Rayfield, Jos, emphasised the vast potential of each Local Government Area to significantly contribute to electricity generation and distribution.
“This initiative marks a pivotal milestone in our developmental journey, underscoring the indispensable role of electricity. It’s second only to water in its importance, as without it, functioning becomes severely constrained,” Mutfwang stated.
He reiterated that this initiative signifies the outset of a journey towards substantial development and affirmed Plateau’s readiness for significant growth and progress.
